I love seeing colourful winter veges and fruits sitting neatly at the market stall on a beautiful sunny day like today:) There are lots of plums around now, and we got so many of them on the other day. They were still a bit sour after a week, so I decided to turn them into plum cupcakes;)
First of all, I made plum compote. When I cut the plums into chunky pieces, I thought…”humm, it’s a bit more than I thought…”. But when they were being cooked, an amazing amount of water came out and eventually they sized down to 1/3.
Plum and almond got on really well, so I mixed almond powder with flour.
Smelling beautiful, I could already tell those cakes were going to be tasty when they were still in the oven.
Here they are out of the oven…, ooh…, they’re really really lovey:) The taste of slightly sour but sweet plum, and the nutty flavour and texture of almond…
Honestly…, really good.
